This is the first time I would see one parked. Roughly, 100 meters from where I currently live in El-Cerrito.
This picture sure speaks a thousand words.
She is beautiful. She is confident. She is so.....sooo..... New! :-)
That red beauty, surrounded by those lifeless, grey metallic dinosaurs.
The Tesla #Model3
"While the so-called "experienced" car-makers are building $40,000 electric cars that look like $18,000 cars, Tesla is busy growing its street-cred by building a $35,000 that looks as cooler than some $50,000 cars. "
When Tesla launched the Roadster in 2009, most of the world laughed at the little company from Silicon Valley, saying what could they possibly know about building cars.
Then the Model S came in 2012, and a few of them sat up and said, "hey wait a minute!"
But many still continued to scoff and show contempt for things they are unable to comprehend.
Now, Model 3 has finally arrived amidst great panic and hysteria among the old guard.
They now know beyond a reasonable doubt that their time is fast running out.
In their panic and confusion, after failing to get government to help them crush their "tiny" nemesis, they resort to senseless bickering and prophesies of impending doom.
They go around making announcements of their own electric cars that will crush Tesla.
Ask them when are these wonderful Electric cars coming, and most of them will say 2019.
Will these wonderful Tesla killers be any different from the Chevrolet Bolt? Or the BMW i8?
"Yes", they claim.
Forgetting that one former Chairman of GM had already revealed to us several times that THEY do NOT know how to make electric cars at a profit.
Yet, they somehow want us to believe that they can use the power of TALK to wipe Tesla off the face of the planet.
So my thinking is this:
If indeed GM and BMW have figured out how to make their electric cars look better and drive longer than their Bolt and i3, then in that case, Tesla isn't the one who needs to be worried.
It is their Chevrolet Malibus and BMW 3 series that should be scared of these wonderful electric cars coming out, right?

Who Is The Wiser?But here is the funniest and saddest part. They forget one minor detail. A detail that they scoffed at even more than they scoffed at the idea of a tiny California company building cars.
They scoffed at Tesla acquiring SolarCity, and forgot about it immediately after their rounds of TV talks.......
But now pay attention:
When these new great and awesome electric cars come out to crush Tesla's Model 3, would that not have an effect?
Will they not be broadening the already growing market of electric car owners who naturally become MORE EDUCATED, by virtue of the relationship, about how they can generate ALMOST FREE solar energy for their electric cars at home (hereby paying NOTHING for fueling their cars).
As this gradually but surely sinks into the minds and hearts of the population, the electric car explosion quickly leads to the renewable energy explosion (especially solar energy).
Guess which company is already the clear leader in that market as well???
I'll give you a hint...... it is neither GM nor BMW.....
Pride is a dangerous thing! Keep it locked.
